Used to love this place. Haven’t been in a couple years so I don’t know if it changed owners or something, but the menu has shrunk, the quality of the food as well as the service have gone way down, and the vibe went from “upscale bar & grille” to “it probably turns into a club after 11pm.” So disappointing- all four entrees at our table were mediocre to poor. Won’t be back. The “Keepin’ My Sunny Side Up” cocktail should be taken off the menu - borderline undrinkable.

Our reservation which was made for a standard indoor seating was not honored right away. The hostess wanted to sit us in the patio when we said no she then wanted to sit at a hightop. Had to remind her that the reservation was made for standard seating. She was a little annoyed that we wouldn’t take the first two options that she offered. The service was very slow waited extremely long for a burger and a salad. When asked for extra dressing it never came. Very disappointed in the whole experience.

We have come several times Joe is great. It is way too loud inside - we sat outside this time which was better but it took for ever to get our food and it was not up to par. The speed of food is a constant issue every time even brunch! And the kids food was cold. You need to work on your kitchen expediting or take less tables as you are unable to get food out in a timely manner. We want to support you and we have had good food at past visits.

Food is solid bar/bistro fare and the bar is well stocked. Only complaint is the floors are all marble tile which makes it extremely loud inside. Having a normal conversation or hearing the waiter is very difficult, especially if anyone in your party is older or a bit hard of hearing. They have a spacious outdoor dining area and if the weather is conducive I would recommend sitting out there.

They do not honor open table reservations! I have been coming here weekly this summer, and my open table reservations are never honored. I usually end up waiting with all the walk-ins, or get a table indoors when I request outdoors, or they are unable to seat me. Also the food is not great. Bartender in the back (outside) is super friendly.

I really wanted to like this place but they missed the mark. Maybe because it was busy and servers did their best to keep up. I must say as dinner progressed service greatly improved. Average bar food at best. “1/2 price” sangria $17? Got 2 1/2 wine glasses from the pitch because it was filled to the brim with ice. I would recommend for drinks and appetizers at the bar while watching sports.

We really enjoyed Avenue Bistro. Love the changes they made with the bar and the outdoor bar. Food was great. Service was excellent. Very very loud though- hard to hear each-other talk. But good bar scene! Will definitely go back.

I had a Tusvany flatbread and glass of Cabernet. Flatbread was delicious and wine pour was generous. My husband had a crispy chicken sandwich and a mezcal negroni--he loved it. Nice Tuesday night supper. Service was very good! Will be back.

This was always our go to brunch place when visiting our son at college, but post-COVID too many changes = we won’t be going back. The menu has changed completely and the restaurant has been redesigned to cater to more of a bar crowd. Our food was cold and missing items. Will be our last time.

The food was good. Delicious wings. We had to change tables to the smaller room because the nouse level made it impossible to talk. A very loud table was the problem but they switched us and it was all good after that

The new food menu has been good - I've tried something new each time (this night it was the French Dip sandwich) along with something I like (the chorizo/potato appetizer is outstanding) - and the service was prompt. Very noisy inside, but manageable.
